Leasing a property to a Micro Finance business




Question and Answer:

Q. We have a tenant who has applied to rent an office from us.


His sole business is in Micro Finance. ie. Small loans.


Would the rental income derived from such a tenant be halaal?


(Query published as received)


A.  No. It will not be permissible to lease your property to such a business as the major/sole functions are interest bearing transactions. The rental income will not be permissible.



And Allah Knows Best
